Trying to replace the bulb in my son's MK6 Fiesta Zetec is a nightmare. It is the high level centre brake light. The handbook isn't much help. It tells me to remove grommets from the back, shove a screwdriver in to release clips and light should come out.

The problem is I can't detect any clips and I can't get it to budge. Has anybody attempted this or are there any photos? (which I realise could be difficult).

Phil,
Newcastle

I have changed one before. It is really quite easy. The way I did it was to work on one side of the light and then the other. Gently pull on the front of the light as you unclip it using a screwdriver through the hole at the back.

Perhaps if you get 2 wood screws or similar,
remove the two screws theat are holding the lens,
then lightly scrw in the woodscrews just a small bit,
enough to grip the lens,
then get a pliers and griop the woodscrew and pull

this method will give you somthing to grip and pull with,
should make it easier :)

Thanks for the answers. The problem remains I can't find the clips.
